During the segment, Noah compared the conflict between Israel and the terrorist organization to a fight between him and his little brothers, suggesting that because Israel was more powerful, it shouldn’t fight back when attacked by Hamas, the Palestinian terrorist group in control of the Gaza Strip.
“If you were in a fight where the other person cannot beat you, how hard should you retaliate when they try to hurt you?” Noah said, before giving the analogy using him and his brothers as examples.
CEO of the American Jewish Committee David Harris responded to Noah with a rebuttal published in The Times of Israel, breaking down the comedian’s argument and slamming him for living in a “post-truth society.”
“Sorry, but your younger siblings were not plotting murder and wreaking societal havoc. You’re ignoring the true nature of Hamas, the fact that it’s been firing 1000s of missiles over the years, building cross-border terror tunnels, kidnapping Israelis, and foregoing development in Gaza to focus on damaging Israel,” Harris wrote while responding to Noah.
Harris went on to say Noah was “downplaying the trauma of millions of Israelis,” who have to rush to bomb shelters and comfort traumatized children.
